Mystery Chest Pains?

Posted by E (Cebu, Philippines) on 07/21/2007

Ted, I just hope you could shed tad info of my predicament. I have been suffering chest pains for quite some time probably due to anxiety and panic attack. Alas, I could not specifically correlate my exceptionally dire condition to any cures and feedbacks in this site. I've been to two different holistic physicians but apparently they just scoofed me and said that I'm too young to suffer any heart diseases.

The results of my EKG and 2D echo w/ doppler was nil of any problems. But I know that there is something wrong with my condition. I wouldn't be feeling this weak if I'm in a tip top condition. After eating, I always suffer from palpitation and sweating.

I have tinnitus too, but I don't know if the latter is preceded by heart diseases. I am often experiencing shortness of breath. A needle stabbing pain in my left chest. A throbbing pain in my right chest. Usually when I get the chance to sleep in the afternoon, I would suddenly wake from the middle of my sleep because of breathing problem. But ironically, it don't happen in my nightime slumbers. I've read lots of remedies from you e.g. acv, h2o2, baking soda, different kinds of oil, vitamins, but alas, I really don't know where to start. I've read one feedback it says, that once you have an onset clogging in your arteries it could not be fixed anymore with just supplements or any forms of home remedies. Is this righ? Albeit, it was refuted by another person asserting that it could be cured. Could you please enlighten me? I am catapulted totally here in oblivion. Because if the former is true, then what's the nitty-gritty of trying any methods of remedies. But I myriadly hope I still have chance with your wonder charms. I am taking right now heaps of vitamins though e.g. b-complex, garlic supplement, vit. c & e. but i think nothing has ameliorated with my "self-prognosis" heart disease. To the point I've just recently tried one of your charms i.e. acv wd baking soda. I wanted to put food grade h2o2 but quite apprehensive of the side effects. Hitherto, I am still mustering some ingredients you have mentioned like zinc something, magnesium chloride and so keen in trying them. Please I badly need your help and copiously hope it could alleviate my poor health or even obliterate it. More power! I am exuberantly blissful of thinking in meeting you personally since we're just neighbors.:-) I want to share with you my anxieties and panic attacks and how it started. If I would do it here, I am pretty sure it would be too kilometric. I'll just be around too for more updates. For the meantime I will just wait for your reply. Pls.do so.

E: Clogged arteries is due to excessive cholesterol and calcium and since cholesterol and excess tissue calcium can be reduce (with sufficient citrates), the clogging of arteries is reduced.

Reducing the cholesterol, excess serum calcium and triglyceride therefore would help. A sharp pain attack and waking up in the middle of the night is something I had when I was a child. My own diagnosis was a simple one: magnesium and electrolytes imbalance. They don't show up in EKG unless it is severe enough, at that stage it would be too late. Chest pain and breathlessness symptoms show much sooner.

My remedy was taking magnesium chloride 250 mg 5 days out of a week. The green tea (two times a day - no sugar, no fructose, no milk, with catechins) will allow the body to easily rid of excess fats easily. Green tea does that from tannins. One tablespoon of granulated powdered lecithin along with every meals would help.

Clogging arteries or heart are often clogged by excess cholesterol and high calcium serum levels. The remedy for this I think would be best to use:

One whole freshly squeezed lime (8 teaspoon) plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. Those are taken 2 times a day. Allow the reaction or fizz to settle down before drinking. This will reduce excess calcium quite efficiently.

I had one woman who complained of chest pains and breathing problems which went away within minutes because of excess sweating (due to global warming - really really hot weather now) and lost of critical electrolytes.

Electrolytes are like batteries to your heart much like electrolytes of the battery's car, but most of Western medicine simply ignored that with the more expensive option that you can probably imagine (that's why they are rich!)

The simplest possible remedy is 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in one liter of water. An emergency remedy, which don't require to drink a lot of water is 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in 1/2 glass of water. Of course, if I happened to have potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate lying around, which I do, I will add that, plus a small pinch of 1/8 teaspoon of magnesium chloride.

The hydrogen peroxide is in low concentration is actually found in high amounts in mountain spring water or plenty in snow which can be as high as 0.5% concentration, at least from my own experience.

The other issue is hydrogen peroxide is actually utilized by the blood and carried to the part of the body where it is needed the most and peroxide is often consumed by the body (to neutralize) within about 45 - 50 minutes. The other issue is the hydrogen peroxide is actually created by the white blood cells needed to neutralize or digest the invading organism. As a result, it is these observations which convinced me that hydrogen peroxide is generally safe at low concentrations.

General weaknesses and breathing problem should go away if a sports drink (which have plenty potassium, ) can help. However, two critical electrolytes are missing here, which obviously is the magnesium and the bicarbonates (baking soda). To get the body to generally balance out the electrolytes drinking a water with some sea salt throughout the day or as an emergency remedy mentioned would have helped me a lot. It took actually only a couple of minutes for this condition to actually reduced or disappeared.

So the remedy was: 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, a tiny pinch of potassium, 1/8 teaspoon of magnesium chloride in 1/2 glass of water. Then before sleep and in the morning a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken at least two times a day. This one is to correct the electrolyte imbalance and some breathlessness. Taking vitamin C 500 mg and Vitamin E 250 mg also helps in the long run, but not critical unless it was never taken at all.

The issue this problem is one of focus, where I would most likely focus on magnesium and electrolytes as the major remedy. ACV helps, but in my opinion, getting a cheap electronic pocket meter to measure the urine to get pH level to close to 7 is important so once the body is properly alkalized, the oxygen levels increased by reducing the carbon dioxide allowing the tissues to recovery with more oxygen. To reduce the clogging from cholesterols and fats, generally I would avoid eating heavy meals or NO MEALS a all except electrolyte drinks after 5.00 p.m. Vegetable oils, french fries, high fatty foods I would avoid and take once or twice a week fish oils and omega 3. As to the excess calcification of tissues that could impair normal functions and hence pains, citrates from lemon and baking soda is more helpful. Citrates tend to reduce serum calcium and that should help normalize excess serum calcium issues.
